Attorneys for Residential and Commercial Property Investors in Fairfield County and New Haven County

Buying an investment property can be a profitable and enjoyable endeavor, but it also takes a significant amount of time and effort and can open you up to issues of liability if you are a residential or commercial landlord. Among the critical initial steps in maximizing your investment is hiring a skilled real estate attorney who will look out for your financial and legal best interests.

That is exactly what you get with the Law Offices of Peter V. Lathouris, LLC, which has diligently served Connecticut clients for more than 30 years. We help individuals with business sales and purchases, residential home sales, and residential home purchases, and also focus on contract drafting and review.

How an Investment Property Lawyer Can Help

The Law Offices of Peter V. Lathouris, LLC can assist you throughout your property ownership lifecycle. In fact, to make sure you are fully protected, it is best to hire an attorney before you complete any investment property purchase. When you enlist our services, we can:

  • Review your purchase agreement, negotiate any necessary changes which benefit you, and represent you at the closing.

  • Decide how your real estate investment operation should be structured. This could include the formation of a limited liability company (LLC), professional corporation (PC), or limited liability partnership (LLP) if you have multiple investors.

  • Draft lease agreements for rental properties and implement rental agreement alterations, including rent increases and changes in utilities responsibility.

  • Review and assess the validity of complaints from tenants and pursue a counteraction if a tenant has filed an unjustified lawsuit against you.

  • Deal with any problematic tenants, including their eviction for failure to pay rent or follow the terms stated in their lease agreement. This requires strict adherence to applicable laws and procedures to avoid violation of the tenant's rights.

  • If you want to make upgrades to your property, we can deal directly with the contractors to ensure the efficacy of any agreement and adherence to local and state building and environmental regulations. If there is a problem with a contractor's work, and they refuse to provide the proper remedy, we can pursue legal action against them.

  • Create a business succession plan if you intend to pass your business on to descendants or other family members.

  • Facilitate a property sale if you decide to reduce the size of your investment property portfolio.
